presidential campaigns. but it was also what i call the larva stage of the religious right in the united states. if you look at who the players were among conservative protestants in 1960, you see some of the leading lights of what we now call the religious right first becoming active in that election. people like billy graham, the national association of evangelicals, and a host of smaller conservative protestant players really broke in their sweatshirt and sneakers in that election as they discovered they had political power. and that politicians cared about their opinions. the trajectory takes off that by now certainly the religious right is a very powerful force. 1960s where they really began to get thirst and taste for playing a very large and high political level. so those are all good reasons i think were thinking about this election in 1960s because those themes reverberate down to this day. what did i learn in the process of writing this book? sort of two major lessons. first of all, kennedy had a very sophisticated approach to his catholicism because all of his holdings told him that
